Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2019-01-02 This guy has been arrested tho pretty much.
He basically lied to the parents about what he was doing in order to get their 'consent', and also circumvented the ethics oversight on the project.
Bisekrankas - 2019-01-02 Yea some pretty damned stupid stuff. I mean consider the danger of making any modifications without a full understanding, as I understand it, there are so many cross dependencies between genes that there is almost impossible to predict what side effects editing may cause before they appear, like the kindeys might stop working at some point.

SolRo - 2019-01-02 Also it has been found that CRISPR isn't as precise and foolproof as originally widely reported. So even if you knew exactly what you were doing in terms of editing, your edits may not occur as intended.
